Tia Mowry-Hardrict is embracing her natural hair during her shelter-in-place life. Many hair salons temporarily have shut down in an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, so just like most people, Mowry-Hardrict has had to go without a visit to her beautician. The “Sister, Sister” actress posted a selfie to Instagram on Wednesday, April 15 that highlighted her naturally curly Afro.
Mowry-Hardrict, the creator of the multivitamin line Anser, snapped the photo in her Southern California home. The former Disney Channel star smiled for the camera sans makeup, but her Afrocentric hairstyle caused people to gravitate toward the photograph. Her tight, coily locks were surrounded by gray strands near her hairline. “It’s been me and my #fro as of late. 👊🏽,” she shared.
Many people admired the 41-year-old mother of two for having the courage to show off her natural beauty. Fans suggested she flaunt her natural tresses more often.
“Come on fro!!,” one user commented.
“Power to the people! ✊🏾,” a second fan commented.
A third user said, “Our natural hair is so beautiful. Society tricked us into relaxing.”
“Gray hair , don’t care 💙,” a fourth fan wrote.
“So much growth 🔥🔥🔥,” a fifth pointed out.
A sixth user gushed, “Wisdom hairs.”
“🗣C’MON HAIR,” a seventh virtually cheered.
“Please wear your hair like this all the time. It’s gorgeous😍,” an eighth begged.
Mowry-Hardrict underwent the big chop three months ago, so fans were shocked to see her hair growing back so quickly. She revealed in an interview with Harper’s BAZZAR magazine that cutting her hair has saved her a significant amount of time in the morning. She said her new hairstyle has taken 20 minutes off her morning routine.
She explained she was hesitant to cut her hair because straight hair has been the standard of beauty in America for such a long time. Despite her concerns, she seemingly does not have any regrets about her drastic hair transformation. “A lot of people say you hold energy in your hair, you hold energy in your body. And I’m telling you, since doing it, I feel just lifted and feel lighter,” she said.
